This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Born in London, England in 1912, she attended Hornsey School of Arts & Crafts in London.

She taught art in English public and private schools and during WW II was in charge of rehabilitation arts and crafts at an American Station Hospital.  She met Ralph Fendig, an American soldier, married him and came to Rensselaer, Indiana in 1948 where she lived and worked for the remainder of her life.

Her primary medium was watercolor although she also worked in oil and from 1948 through 1960 created a series of 13 woodblock engravings that she printed privately and used as her personal holiday greeting to friends.  Fendig became best known for her cityscapes, landscapes, still life, mostly from Indiana, Wisconsin and Arizona and English country and village scenes. (She traveled frequently to her native country always returning with many painting subjects.)  The woodblock engravings were publicly printed in 2001 and are available in portfolio  by the Prairie Arts Council.

Hoosier Salon (exhibited nearly every year between 1951 and 1977, a total of 60 paintings), Brown County Art Guild, Northern Indiana Art Association, Indiana Artists Club.
